The Alain Passard dinners at Manresa, just the food ma’am

(If you are reading this post on a RSS reader, you might want to click through to Chez Pim for the slideshow.)

Some more shots from the Manresa/Arpège dinners last weekend. This set is just the food, ma’am. Just the food. More pictures of the fun inside the kitchen to follow.

I won’t tell you how the food tasted. I’m far too biased to be a good reporter on this one, so you’ll just have to see what others have said about the dinners instead.

    Dear Pim!
    The least I may say about Alain Passard is that he tends to digress (with all his genius intact, mind you!). Some years ago, he decided to go “all vegetables” ( with a few exceptions). You have the impression to be “invited” to sample his discoveries. More and more on the same attitude adopted by the likes of Pierre Gagnaire!

    Mmm… such a beautiful and earthy menu. Wondering what the foam is on the carrot/chocolate dish? Also, it’s so good to see a restaurant/food post again! Loving it!

    Passard’s dishes seem the same dishes that he has been serving at Arpège at outrageous prices for at least 10 years. I have not eaten at Manresa, but cannot imagine that Chef Kinch is already on autopilot. I would have expected Passard to let himself inspire by the encounter and not reel off his standards.

    Pim, El Bulli has nothing on this except crazy pieces of steel sculpture. Everything looks spectacular! -Corkdork
